I see that Mastodon 3.0 has been released, removing OStatus support. My instance only supports OStatus, so that means as 3.0 rolls out, my connections with the rest of the ActivityPub fediverse will gradually be cut.

Au revoir, tout le monde ! À bientôt, j'espère.

Is you instance running a version of Mastodon prior to 1.6? Is it not possible for your instance to upgrade?

@fitheach Yes it could be upgraded, but my sysadmin ( @thurloat ) is busy, understandably so.

@mpjgregoire
Yeah, of course.
If you suddenly vanish, I'll know what has happened.

@mpjgregoire @fitheach long story extra short:

we forked pre 1.0 to add some community features and make changes, kept up with latest til around 1.4-5 upstream had a major refactor on both backend and frontend that would have needed almost all features be rewritten from scratch.

we backported many security and performance patches from upstream as time went on (including some initial AP support), but can't find the time or motivation to rewrite everything from scratch.

@thurloat Hypothetically, why not migrate to Mastodon 3.0, then someday add back any features that have disappeared?

We'll miss the "sociables" and so on, but they're nice to have, not essential to the enjoyment of Moosetodon.
